Maggi’s bold paintings, whether abstract or representational, explode with color and reflect a passion for life, beauty, and the wildness of nature. They shine with a quality of mystery—a poetic sensibility and depth that touches the beyond.
“I AM INSPIRED BY BEING WITH A SPIRITUAL MASTER,” SHE EXPLAINS.
Not surprisingly, Maggi is also a talented gardener and landscape designer who has created a large public park and a more intimate romantic garden. Many of her paintings are set in these gardens. They convey a sense of delight—ecstasy as well as inner calm, a tempest of color and a peaceful reflectiveness that is also the experience of anyone who visits these gardens.
“I love laying down color and shape,” she says. “I love the suggestion of a subject, leaving the viewer plenty of room for interpretation and interaction with the painting.”
The artist has shown at art fairs in Laguna Beach, Westwood, Santa Monica, and Marina Del Rey, California. She works almost exclusively with acrylics in her large abstracts. For smaller canvases, she often employs mixed media—oil pastels, ink, and acrylics.
